Some wreaths are so big and ostentatious they’ll barely fit on your front door. Others beautifully blend in with your holiday decor. Many are green and leafy while some are hand crafted out of ribbon and other festive material. What they all have in common is they’re created for a good cause.
The Pub Wilton Manors is hosting its 7th Annual Charity Wreath Auction on Thursday, December 2, 2021. Local Businesses and individuals put a lot of thought and creativity into their entries. Over the years we’ve seen some with Santa’s sled, unique decorations, and a blue and silver wreath that gives off a cool winter vibe without actually having to go up north.
Local entertainment legend Electra will be pulling triple duty as host and auctioneer for the event, as well as performing.
Transforming a wreath from a plain green circle to fabulous foliage takes work, but experts are helping out. The Christmas Palace, at 800 NE 13th Street in Fort Lauderdale, is giving discounts on wreaths and wreath-making supplies to anyone donating a wreath to the auction. Ask for Bill or David (the managers), and tell them you’re working on a wreath for The Pub Wilton Manors Wreath Auction.
Drop off your wreath at The Pub between Monday, November 29 and Thursday, December 2, 2021. They will be on display all week so bidders can see what catches their eye. The event starts at 8PM at The Pub, located at 2283 Wilton Drive in Wilton Manors.
All the proceeds from the auction go to Kids In Distress, which works for child abuse prevention and treating abused and neglected children in Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
